Premier League fixtures: David Moyes returns to Goodison Park

David Moyes returns to Goodison Park for the first time since his switch to Old Trafford.

Everton, who beat United at Old Trafford last December courtesy of a late strike from Bryan Oviedo, are fighting for a chance to finish above Arsenal in a Champions League spot race. Roberto Martinez, who has been widely praised for introducing more attractive tactics to conservative Liverpool side, said he would welcome the Scot back to his old home, but will try to disappoint him on the pitch. Manchester United are now focused on reaching the Europa League and must finish above Tottenham Hotspur to secure participation in European competition, but also have a slight chance to finish above Arsenal and Everton should Gunners lose seven points in the last four matches. Pienaar, Traore, Oviedo, Kone and Gibson are long-time absentees in Everton side, while Jagielka and McCarthy are doubtful. Robin van Persie is the only certain miss for Moyes. Chris Smalling, Marouane Fellaini, Rafael and Wayne Rooney are doubtful.

Hull City host Arsenal in the FA Cup final drill. Steve Bruce still needs one win to fell safe and won’t let Arsene Wenger have an easy life at KC Stadium.

Leaders Liverpool travel to relegation-bound Norwich City as a rehearsal to crucial encounter with Chelsea at Anfield next week. Jordan Henderson will be missing through suspension.

Jose Mourinho must beat struggling Sunderland to stay in the title race, but needs his players fresh by Wednesday, when Chelsea host Atletico Madrid in Champions League semi-final.
